Jake Lambeth: Senior Sportsperson of the Month for July

Jake Lambeth, 20, was selected in the NSW State Men’s team along with former Grafton resident Rhys Cropper for the Australian under-21 Hockey Championships which were played in Perth last month.

He scored four of the team’s 11 goals from their opening three matches.

NSW defeated Tasmania 5-2 before losing 3-2 to a talented Queensland side featuring former Grafton resident Tyler Gaddes, but still managed to finish top of Pool A on goal difference.

NSW recently defeated Northern Territory 4-1 in the quarterfinal and played Victoria in the semi-final.

They placed third in the final with Lambeth scoring a goal.
